WHEAT RIDGE – Jefferson Center for Mental Health is pleased to share its 2017 Art of Hope calendar! This is the 11th year the calendar is proudly presented to donors, volunteers, supporters and community partners as Jefferson Center strives to continue to increase awareness and reduce the stigma often associated with mental illness.
Each client whose artwork is featured in this calendar has their own story to tell… stories of recovery, resilience, and strength. More than 130 works of art were submitted this year from 43 artists of all ages. Their passion, creativity and hope shine through.
Behavioral health disorders are more common than cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Over the course of their lives, one in five people will experience a mental health issue.
At Jefferson Center for Mental Health, through our broad array of services and programs, we help nearly 1,000 new clients each month who come to our doors facing some of life’s toughest challenges…people with severe mental illness or those with one-time emotional issues, in times of crisis and on an ongoing basis, for families and individuals of all ages. We help them find hope. Last year we served more than 30,000 people!
We appreciate all of the members in our community who support the work we do and carry the message that mental health services are vital to the health of our community. If you would like a copy of this year’s calendar, please contact Melissa at 303-432-5156 or MelissaS@jcmh.org.
